Master gets upgrades
The 2.3 dCi powerplant, has had fuel consumption improved by up to 3.8 mpg (SL/SM dCi 125 Quickshift6 Euro 5 versions), with the core-selling dCi 125 up by 3.3 mpg (SL/SM versions). CO2 emissions now start at 194 g/km, and are down by an average of 16g/km (24 g/km in the case of dCi 125 Quickshift6 Euro 5 versions of SL28 and SL33).
To achieve these savings, Renault has fitted, new oil and power steering pumps, low rolling resistance tyres, and added a new gearbox lubricant.
For enhanced cabin comfort, a selection of new, easier to use and better-equipped radios are now available. Bluetooth and USB connectivity are now standard features across the range, while flagship Sport versions come with a CD player and MP3 playback, as well as a separate display.
Optional air suspension is also now available for the vast majority of the front-wheel drive range at £2,000 excluding VAT. A new option also appears for twin-wheel rear-wheel drive Chassis Cabs in the form of 3.5 tonne towing capacity, priced at £350 excluding VAT. This represents an additional towing capacity of 500kg over the current Master, taking GTW from 6.5 to 7 tonnes.
